About Meridian High School
Executive Headteacher's Welcome
Thank you for expressing an interest in Meridian High School.
Since the start of this academic year, I have been leading the strategic direction of Meridian as Executive Headteacher. Our Leadership Team are committed to the "Challenge - Learn - Achieve” ethos in order to ensure that our students have the opportunity to thrive at Meridian. Alongside our "Challenge - Learn - Achieve” ethos, our revised school values of “Resilience- Ambition-Respect” underpin our core values.
Meridian High has a dedicated staff team who are making a rapid difference to the school. GLF Schools provides support to the team and we work closely together to recruit the best possible staff.
The website is currently being updated to reflect our curriculum development and values. Please do take the opportunity to return to the website in the near future to see these changes in action.
We warmly encourage you to come and see us at work, we look forward to welcoming you to our school.
Mrs Esther Brooks,
About Meridian High School
Meridian High School is a forward-looking, dynamic Academy, on a journey of rapid improvement within GLF Schools. We believe education is about developing the whole person, helping learners to understand the many different branches of human knowledge, challenging them to think critically and encouraging a desire for truth and curiosity in life.
Based in New Addington, Croydon, Meridian High School first opened under it's current name in 2015. It was previously known as Addington High School and has around 1,200 pupils. The secondary school and sixth form was named for the prime meridian line, which passes through the school grounds.
Values and vision
Meridian High School does a great deal to ensure that pupils have a strong sense of family and take pride in their school. Teachers seek to ensure that pupils develop both inside and outside the classroom, with extensive extra-curricular activities on offer. The intention is that pupils leave the school with the emotional and social intelligence to succeed in the real world, as well as strong academic qualifications.
Our School is a family. That means, above all else, we help each other to be:
